The Sun is now in Taurus – an earth sign – and one of the Sabian symbols associated with this early degree is, “Natural steps to a lawn blooming with clover.” Take some time to nail down details and plan for steady growth for recent initiatives – particularly those started under the influence of the Sun’s recent transit through the fiery sign of Aries.

“In contemplating sychronicities, don’t just marvel at the laws of probability, but wonder at their meaning. They’re there to remind us to think about what we are doing, to pay attention, but also to deepen the mystery of life.”
If you are looking for guidance this is a particularly good week to be on the lookout for synchronicities as Mercury is conjunct Uranus – exact on Wednesday and in effect through the 12th. The trickster is about! Pay attention to innovative, evolutionary ideas as well.
Jupiter will station direct on Wednesday also at 12 degrees of Leo bringing increased optimism, expansion and abundance. Check the house that Jupiter is transiting in your chart to get a sense of how this beneficent aspect is likely to affect you.

Why aren’t we all like that wise old bird?” Edward Hersey Richards
We are in a time between eclipses with the upcoming Lunar Eclipse April 4 at 14 degrees of Libra. This eclipse strongly aspects the Uranus/Pluto square – the disruptive, dynamic, transformative aspect of our time – bringing it home in a very personal way.
Although there are aspects that suggest restlessness and a desire to initiate projects it is is best to pull together loose ends and finish or culminate projects in need of completion.
It also bodes well to contemplate how your life and aspirations have changed in the past five years or so and where you would like to be headed now. Pay special attention to the yearnings of the soul. Heed intuitive messages and guidance.
The Sabian symbol for Saturn’s placement now is,” And old owl perched high up in a tree.”

Sabian symbol reference from Lynda Hill’s 360 Degrees of Wisdom.
“Within you there remains an enchanted place where the colours are more luminous and the air more fragrant than ever; a place where marvels never cease; miracles and magic abound; and where fascination and enthusiasm breed creation. This place is called Aries.What an adventure lies ahead. The slate has been wiped clean. It is time to create afresh.”
Andrew Smith, Irish author and astrologer.
“Newness is the energy of the edge of chaos, the place where the familiar and the unexpected and unpredictable meet, the place of life and emergence.” David Spangler
When I was growing up I liked to spend a lot of time in the kitchen – I resonated with the mysterious alchemical surroundings : knives chopping, pots bubbling and bread rising in the oven. There was one kitchen appliance however that I had been warned about – the pressure cooker.
As a result I was wary of the rattling valve on top which contained the pressure of steam building up inside. I had been warned about the kind of explosion that could occur due to misuse or accident.
There are volatile energies for this upcoming week that remind me of the background noise of that valve rattling atop the pressure cooker.
In general tensions are building with the Pluto/Uranus square -exact on the 16th – and we are heading into Solar Eclipse on the Day of the Vernal Equinox- March 20. This week the Mars/Uranus influence is exact on March 11.
The old texts hold a number of warnings about Mars/Uranus but in my studies one of the most helpful things I have read is to watch the energy of your magnetic field that you do not attract volatile events – i.e. do not storm around angry or impatient under this influence. Provide more down time. Mars/Uranus is known for sudden, impulsive, erratic action and this can be accident prone – for yourself and on the part of others. Too much energy, too little awareness. Tempers and irritability can run high.
On a positive note Mars Uranus is known for is a sudden break for freedom which can come as the result of inner pressures building to a point where they become uncontainable. This can result in an unexpected moment of truth and also breakthroughs in areas that have felt stuck or stagnant. It is a time when we can suddenly land in territory that is new and that represents a sudden and unexpected advance.
It is a very powerful time when evolutionary leaps can occur in surprising ways if the energies are harnessed and implemented with clarity and consciousness.
” Remember that you are at an exceptional hour in this unique epoch, that you have this great happiness, this invaluable privilege, of being present at the birth of a new world.” The Mother, Sri Aurobindo Ashram
One of the very strong influences throughout 2015 is Saturn square Neptune. Whenever planets are in a square aspect there is a need to build a bridge between the two energies – a need for reconciliation of seemingly conflicting forces. Squares are a call to action.
Throughout the year as these two planets form this configuration there is a call to make manifest your ideals on a more concrete everyday level. Another way to say this is to live your ideals and higher goals in a more pragmatic way.
It is important to have very clear aspirations and to stay in touch with them on a daily basis. It is also key to create a concrete framework through which those goals can manifest one step at a time and to be willing to be patient and persevering along the path.
The many rapid changes occurring in the world now, the many revelations about corruption in the business world and government which appear to thwart more ethical and idealistic models of evolution are a call to each one of us to move in a direction of higher consciousness in the way we construct our lives, interact with others and move in the direction of our destined calling.
The Jupiter/Saturn/ Uranus trine indicates support, guidance and sometimes surprising assistance from the spiritual world. Watch for signs as affirmation.

There are some very interesting aspects at play this week. The Sun will conjunct Neptune at 11:45 PM (EST) on Wednesday 2/25. This is a good influence for seeking creative and spiritual solutions to long standing challenges and relationship issues. Take an inspired approach. Heed guidance and intuition as the veils are thin.
Saturn plays a strong role this week as well – still squaring the Sun and Neptune. This can make tasks and endeavors more arduous – often resulting in delays which require patience, attention to detail and renewed commitment. It is a good time to acknowledge how you face and overcome obstacles with discipline and perseverance.
Mars and Venus are conjunct in the fiery sign of Aries increasing the desire and energy for pleasure. It is a good time for socializing, dating and new opportunities for love.
Venus and Mars in Aries can be daring. impulsive and impatient but there are stabilizing aspects from Saturn which indicate a good time to build a strong foundation for long term relationships. The energy and drive are available for projects related to work and expanding abundance. Be open to a creative, committed approach here as well.

Mars and Venus are conjunct in the sky now through March 11. The Sabian symbol associated with the conjunction at the powerful degree of 0 Aries is, “A woman has risen out of the ocean, a seal is embracing her.”
This symbol speaks of the cycles of becoming and echoes the ancient Irish tale of the selkies – or seals – who emerge from the sea one day of the year to take human form. In one of the tales the selkie’s skin is stolen by a man who loved her wildness and she was forced to remain in human form with him until years later when her hidden sealskin was discovered and she was free to don it and go live in the sea once again.
In the cycles of personal evolution it is important to periodically clarify and shed old ways of being and perceiving that no longer apply – particularly beliefs integrated from authority figures that hindered your ability to move in a direction of increased personal authenticity. Now is the time for broad horizons.

Tuesday’s New Moon (8:14 am EST) is at 0 degrees of Aquarius. This is the last New Moon in a series that occur on the day the Sun changes signs- this time into Aquarius. Be innovative about your life’s direction now and look for open doors. It is best to set intentions which come from a place of evolving inner wholeness.
Mercury stations retrograde on Wed the 21st at 17 degrees of Aquarius. I was listening to a lecture by the astrologer Rick Levine who mentioned that the three largest internet outages in history all occurred on a day when Mercury was stationing. So not that it is necessarily going to happen this time but do make sure important info is backed up pronto. Mercury will station direct Feb 12.
